In brief: Not possible

Bleaching strips will whiten only natural teeth so if you have any porcelain crowns or veneers, there will be noticeable color differences between the dental work and your whiter teeth.
hope it helps. Ask cosmetic dentist for appropriate solution for your situation.

In brief: Nope

No. Only natural enamel will respond to the bleaching process.
Existing restorations such as fillings, bonded composite, or bonded porcelain veneers will not bleach. They can be changed, but won't bleach.

In brief: No

The chemistry of teeth bleaching is designed to work on natural tooth structure.
All types of veneers are man-made and so would be not be effected by the same chemistry. Porcelain type Veneers can be polished to remove surface stain, but while composite veneers can also be polished, the later is microscopically porous and so can become darker over time. For what's best for you, ask your dentist!
